The “Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Special” Write-Ups And Videos

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimi reflect on 
Hocus Pocus 25 years later
October 21, 2018

Mister  D: I don’t know what is wrong with me but for a decade I just lost my voice, stopped being irreverant, and just seemed to go through the motions on everything. I’ll try to hold back on here.

This special was so cheesy, only a mouse could have loved it, Or maybe it was just geared to a younger audience which seems more likely. And no, the performance by those 3 girls was not “Iconic” Cute, yes, but Iconic is reserved and will remain the version by Bette Midler. I wish these hacky writers would leave certain words alone that used to mean something special. No, not every female singer and movie star is a diva, If you’re popular on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, you’re not a diva. So quit watering down the words.

BetteBack April 21, 1974: Bette Midler To Receive A Special Tony Award

Bakersfield Californian April 21, 1974 t8m49rq36uq463q9A Moon for the Misbegotten,” “Candide.” Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Bette Midler and Liza Minnelli have been chosen to receive special Tony Awards. The presentations will be made at the 28th Annual Tony Awards ceremonies, airing on ABC. Sunday at 9PM. The special Tonys, presented by the League of New York Theatres and Producers, were voted by the Tony Administration Com mittee in recognition of outstanding theatrical achievements which were not eligible for the regular American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards competition. Eugene O ‘N eill’s “A Moon for the Misbegotten,” a revival and therefore not eligible, will be cited as “an outstanding dramatic revival of a major American play.” “A Moon for the Misbegotten” was produced by Lester Osterman, Elliot Martin and Richard Horner. The musical production of “Candide.” also a revival, will be honored for “an outstanding contribution to the artistic development of the musical theatre.” The special Tony for “Candide” will be presented to the show ’s producers, The Chelsea Theatre Center of Brooklyn, in conjunction with Harold Prince and Ruth Mitchell. Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, the co-stars and co-authors of the smash hit. “Good Evening.” an entertainment that doesn’t fit into the established Tony Awards categories, will be honored for “a unique contribution to the theatre of comedy.” Messrs. Cook and Moore have been seen in New York in “ Beyond the Fringe.” and in a revue they wrote called “The Establishment.” Bette Midler (who was featured in the original “ Fiddler on the R o o f ’ cast) and Liza Minnelli (who won a Tony Award for “Flora the Red Menace”) will each receive a special Tony in honor of their successful and highly acclaimed concerts at the Palace Theatre this season. Their awards will cite them for contributing to the “superior concert entertainment on the Broadway stage.”
